Abstract: Once the Romania moved toward market economy, the presence of a free central banking institution started being necessary in, at least, two decision areas: the last resort lender or banker for all romanian banks and the monetary policy management. The lack of historic capitalism experience, the delays of governmental legislative and economic reforms, the ownership changes of the former state-own banks, the existence of the real negative interest rates on banking deposits, the regional crises, the high costs of financial intermediation, the alternative of financing by arrears, and the lack of legislation in by-law forced recovery of receivables, all that together were challenges affecting the health of banking system.
